Security Loophole in IOS8 allows you to play SNES games

If you love your retro games and also love your IOS devices then it must be your lucky day as a security loophole in IOS 8 makes it possible to run classic SNES games on your iPhone (without Jailbreaking it).

As Apple doesnt allow emulators on their app store (unlike Android) it makes it hard for you to play your favorite unapproved games.

The trick called the “Date Trick” found by Dario Sepulveda of the GBA4IOS team. This exploit is currently being used by emulator makers in the wild, like SNES emulators.

It is said that Apple is going to patch the loophole in IOS 8.1, that being the case if you love playing these games then get them while you can.
